    Default Carp Spring Outdoors show Apr 4, 5 & 6

    I usually skip these shows, but i'm in dire need of some light-warm-wicking-breathable turkey hunting layers (if such clothing is even manufactured lol) so I'm going to check it out when doors open on Friday.

    Hoping most of the serious vendors (not including the overpriced gun traders here) are set up by then.

    Who else is going and what are you hoping to find?

    I'll be working with some good friends at their set up. We usually sell a pile of guns there, in fact I think last spring we sold 75 if remember right. Saturday is always very busy. I am hoping to catch a bit of the calling competitions there too.

    Stopped in quickly tonight on my way back to Ottawa. Wasn't terrible, even though many vendors weren't set up yet.

    Managed to get the waterproof/wicking shell I needed for turkey hunting, so that's good. 1st night of the show and clothing sellers were falling over themselves to knock the price down. It was regular $140 in store, stickered down to $100 for the Carp show... and ended up getting it for $80, taxes inc. I can only imagine the peanuts retailers buy this crap for.

    Firearms and accessories were a different story. Not one seller would budge on a price. There was a nice used tikka ss laminate .243 that I was interested in, but the guy was asking $745 for it and wouldn't drop a penny. That's $100 more than I can get a brand new one for at SAIL.

    I stopped in tonight. There were less vendors at the gun show than usual. I found a nice Remington model 1100, but the seller was asking a little too much and wouldn't budge.
    I hope I win the Beretta over-under that the Grenville fish and game club is raffling off. That would make my day. I was speaking to the guys from the club, and I think I might join. It sounds like they have a nice set up.

    Hey Rick it was nice chatting with you again. What was the final score on that non typical velvet rack you were measuring?
    The picture I took did not turn out good so I will let you post some of yours.

    Another good turn out at the Carp show judging by the crowd of people inside and the hundreds of half tons lining up the area side streets.
